The Gates of Rome PDF ´ The Gates ePUB Â CF IgguldenI was born in the normal way in 1971 and vaguely remember half pennies and sixpences I have written for as long as I can remember poetry short stories and novels It’s what I always wanted to do and read English at London University with writing in mind I taught English for seven years and was Head of English at St Gregory’s RC High School in London by the end of that period I have enormous respect for those who still labour at the chalk face In truth I can’t find it in me to miss the grind of paperwork and initiatives I do miss the camaraderie of the smokers’ room as well as the lessons where their faces lit up as they understood what I was wittering on aboutMy mother is Irish and from an early age she told me history as an exciting series of stories – with dates My great grandfather was a Seannachie so I suppose story telling is in the genes somewhere My father flew in Bomber Command in WWII then taught maths and science Perhaps crucially he also loved poetry and cracking good tales Though it seems a dated idea now I began teaching when boys were told only girls were good at English despite the great names that must spring to mind after that statement My father loved working with wood and equations but he also recited ‘Vitai Lampada’ with a gleam in his eye and that matters franklyI’ve always loved historical fiction as a genre and cut my teeth on Hornblower and Tai Pan Flashman Sharpe and Jack Aubrey I still remember the sheer joy of reading my first Patrick O’Brian book and discovering there were nineteen in the series I love just about anything by David Gemmell or Peter F Hamilton or Wilbur Smith I suppose the one thing that links all those is the love of a good taleThat’s about it for the moment If you’d like to get in touch with me leave a comment in the forum or you can tweet me ConnIggulden I’ll leave it there for the moment If you’ve read my books you know an awful lot about the way I think already There’s no point overdoing itConn Iggulden

    The Gates of Rome PDF ´ The Gates ePUB Â gates pdf, rome mobile, The Gates kindle, The Gates of Rome KindleI've been amazed by quite a few historical fiction already but none of this specific genre Rome is one of my favorite places ever since I was young I aced my third year in high school where we had Greek Roman and Egyptian History Those 3 are my main interest kindly include Russian History but I haven't read anything about that though I know that this novel is high on the inaccuracy but the author made a note in the end anyway He said that he intentionally had to do the inaccuracy to make the plot a lot better I honestly didn't mind the inaccuracies even though I'm a semi huge history buff I found the novel really interesting despite the issue I know most of the people who hated this didn't like the inaccuracies so I guess that goes to show

    The Gates of Rome PDF ´ The Gates ePUB Â gates pdf, rome mobile, The Gates kindle, The Gates of Rome KindleWilliam Bernhardt author of Nemesis is quoted on The Gates of Rome as saying what Robert Graves did for Claudius Conn Iggulden now does forJulies Caesar This would be true of Robert Graves was a thriller writing moron willing to ignore factual history at a moment's notice for mere literary convenienceIn his historical note afterward Iggulden does mention that most of Julius Caesar's childhood is a mystery to historians Iggulden could be forgiven for taking his liberties in with this period of the future dictator's life without taking too much flack if only because his theories could not be disproven However there is little excuse for how he bastardized the competition between Gaius Marius and Lucius Cornelius SullaIggulden portarys Marius as being a populist infinitely younger than he was by the time Julius Caesar was born Sulla is reduced to being an implied deviant obsessed with worshiping Aphrodite but may still be a brilliant general in his spare

    The Gates of Rome PDF ´ The Gates ePUB Â gates pdf, rome mobile, The Gates kindle, The Gates of Rome Kindle 3 I think most people faced with a work of Historical Fiction based on well researched and known historical characters tend to look for the historical truth despite knowing that the works are romanticized and fictionalized I think in the case of Gaius Julius Caesar it would be even harder to take dramatic licenses and let the author's imagination run free because he is such a famous figure in history it is hard to create timelines without being called on it In this book the author does a great job portraying the youth of the future Dictator of Rome and his fictional best friend Marcus Things get a bit murkier once we involve the also very famous populist general and Gaius's uncle Gaius Marius This was a man larger than life and with countless wins on the battlefield but better kn

    The Gates of Rome PDF ´ The Gates ePUB Â gates pdf, rome mobile, The Gates kindle, The Gates of Rome KindleFirst off there was nothing wrong with the writing or the pacing or action It was all fine But because this is historical fiction and I am trained in history certain things about this book bothered me enough to really lessen my enjoyment of reading it If this were an alternate history it wouldn't bother me because in an alternate history novel the end is different duh right? But because I know this is going to the same end as the histories then historical inaccuracies just stick in my crawSPOILER ALERTOK my main issues with the bookMarcus Brutus and Julius Caesar did not grow up together Caesar was 15 years older than Brutu

    The Gates of Rome PDF ´ The Gates ePUB Â gates pdf, rome mobile, The Gates kindle, The Gates of Rome KindleIt has been a bloody long time since I last had a review to do that felt this easy to write This book was so cut and dry for me It falls into a class of read that I never fail to find the words to elaborate onIncompatibility One of the nicest negative review words a reviewer could draw upon incompatibility The sweetest way to say that I thought it was bad but maybe it isn't the authors faultIf we were in a relationship this book and I I would be saying to it I want you to know that it isn't you It is me I think we are just too different and are far better off apart I kn

    The Gates of Rome PDF ´ The Gates ePUB Â gates pdf, rome mobile, The Gates kindle, The Gates of Rome KindleA good first book in the series but not nearly as compelling as his Genghis series The story is good consistent and well written but it's also a bit boring I'll still finish out the series but why does every author write about Rome and this time period in such pedantically humorless tones? The Khans weren't exactly Comedy Central material and yet there's so much humor and personality in that series It's not just Igulden Every author who takes on this time period does so in such a monotone fashion I get the legions were strict military unit's but were they castrated of humor to the point of being the Unsullied? We need Tyrion to liven them up a bit

    The Gates of Rome PDF ´ The Gates ePUB Â gates pdf, rome mobile, The Gates kindle, The Gates of Rome KindleReview of the audiobook narrated by Robert GlenisterEven though I love history and historical fiction I've never found Roman history interesting I've never known exactly why I love ancient Egypt the pre colonization civilizations of the Americas any history after the Romans just not the Romans or Greeks if I can group those two time periods together My solution was that a great historical fiction novel set in that period would do the trick to jump start my interest This is not that novelI love that with historical fiction you can get transported to a different place and time but in this book if you renamed the people and places you wo
